Geothermal and Hydronic Heating

 
 Hydronic refers to a system of heating or cooling that uses a fluid (usually water or vapour) to transfer heat in a closed system of pipes.

A given amount of water can absorb almost 3500 times more heat as the same volume of air for the same temperature change. This means that the volume of water that must be moved through a building to deliver a given amount of heat is only about 0.03% that of air. This greatly reduces the size of the distribution network
